Default info on gnu carbon credit 2011

Anyone who has tested the carbon credit 2011?

Seems to be a great all mnt/freestyle board.

Please give me your opinion based on your personal experience with this board (so not about what you read or heard). Thanks.

It's basically the Park Pickle, but on a lower level of materials. It rides a little bit worse, but it's a great board for it's price.

the carbon credit is built with bi-axial glass with carbon stringers, vs tri-axial glass in higher end boards. This is very common in the $400 dollar range. Its the same constructions as a capita indoor fk, Never summer Circuit, ride machete... The carbon credit is built with a extruded base where higher end boards have a sintered base. With all this said the Carbon credit is a great board built in the USA, with some pretty cool features, magne traction and banana rocker.

I have the Carbon Credit 2010 and rode it all last winter. I LOVE this board. I am an intermediate/advanced rider staying mostly to blues and some blacks on the east coast - not much in the park even though most would call this board a park board. By the end of the season, I was blasting past all my buddies and it took me up a whole level of riding ability. Just a real easy to ride, easy to turn, light, fun board. I previously rode a Burton Air. What a difference, great hold on the east coast ice too - I love the reverse camber and banana traction.

I myself ride a 156w 2010 pickle and my boy just bought a 2010 Carbon Credit. The board looks like its made wvery well. It will hold up to anything you can do on it. Also like everyone else said the board has all the great features, magna traction and rocker, plus its mervs board, def a great board.
